Thereupon the Asuras said to one another: “Hereby even greater evil is inflicted on us, for the human voice speaks more!” Kilata and Akuli then said: “God-fearing, they say, is Manu: let us then ascertain!” They went to him and said: “Manu! we will sacrifice for thee!” He said: “Wherewith?” They said: “With this thy wife!” He said: “So be it!” And on her being killed that voice went from her.
